    Hey guys!

    I just 'backed up' and converted 'my copy' of sm4sh, (without inserting a correct header, and ignoring the 7x xorpad, if it matters), and I tried going online. Against my expections, it somehow worked and I played several matches?!

    Can anyone confirm this? :D

    Is it really your copy? Because if it is then it already has a header

    The point of adding headers for online play was that scene ROMs come without headers. If you dumped it yourself it'll have the header.

    Considering the apostrophe marks (instead of quotation marks, like some people do), he's most likely saying he's using a pirated ROM.

    No, notice how he says he went online with it. He's using Gateway.

    Hopefully they don't ban your NintendoID.

    To clear up: I am using a scene dump as some already noted. So, no-one who can reproduce this?

    Check if it has a header already. The hell are you waiting for? This "mystery" could have been solved before it even became a mystery if you had done just that.

    Nope, I tested and cia games works online even if the original rom doesn't have a valid header.

    Before the USA ROM was available on most sites, there was a personal dump with a header going around on a certain warez forum... so it's totally possible that the one you downloaded already had a header. That one did.
